Work dictated by a recall is generally completed at no charge to the vehicle owner, regardless of whether you are the first owner or a subsequent owner.

Defect Description

Prevost is recalling certain model year 2010-2013 H3 and X3 coaches and MTH XLII-45E coach shells manufactured between June 29, 2009, up to June 4, 2012, and equipped with an Automatic Fire Detection and Suppression System (AFSS). There is the possibility that the AFSS could unintentionally activate due to wear of the linear thermal detection cable.

Defect Consequence

An activation of the AFSS causes the vehicle to come to an unplanned stop. This could increase the risk of a vehicle crash or personal injury.

Defect Corrective Action

Prevost will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and repair the linear thermal detector by adding a protective sheath, free of charge. The recall began in March 2013. Owners may contact Prevost at 1-418-883-2888 x 6558.

Notes

Prevost's campaign recall number is SR13-03. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Defect Description

Prevost Cars, Inc.(Prevost) is recalling certain model year 2009-2011 XL2, XL2 Shells, X3 Shell Converted Coaches, and X3 motorcoaches manufactured January 1, 2009, to December 31, 2011, and equipped with an automatic fire suppression system (AFSS) pressure tank in the engine compartment. The tank's pressure relief valve may not withstand the temperatures in the engine compartment, resulting in the venting of the extinguishing agent.
